It begins with advice on developing the outdoor area within a setting, then takes this a step further and how to manage an outdoor programme in a woodland setting.
There are plenty of suggestions for activities, examples of sheets used for planning, assessing and recording impact and outcomes of the programme and how to share this with parents.
The only negative point, in my opinion, is the small size of the text and layout of the book. This makes it harder to read than many books. There are huge margins too, which I presume are for note taking. I would have prefered a larger font size! That's my reason for giving this book a 4 star rating.
The content, however, is excellent and I recommend this book to all forward thinking and progressive early years practitioners!
A good book, full of great ideas, and well worth a shot
